Apollo Ultra 10 is an entry level performance road bike, aimed at the recreational road cyclist looking for an endurance bike at an amazing price without compromising on performance.
Made from Mitsubishi high-modulus carbon fibre, the frame uses a box downtube with a pressfit bottom bracket and tapered head tube. This gives the Ultra a responsive feel, turning more of the power in your pedal stroke into forward momentum. The use of slim seatstays gives the bike a good level of comfort, without compromising structural integrity or efficiency. A full carbon fork with tapered steerer offering lighter weight, more responsive steering, as well as a smoother ride.
Geometry wise, the Ultra is designed for longer days in the saddle. The bike is ideal for Gran Fondo style events, social riding, or even a long distance commute. The relaxed seating position puts you slightly more upright than on a dedicated race bike, and helps relieve the pressure on the lower back.
The Ultra 10 features a Shimano 105 groupset for the ultimate compromise of price and performance, 105 has long been renowned as the workhorse drivetrain of the road bike category giving many a rider top performance and years of reliability. A compact crankset paired with a wide range cassette gives this bike excellent hill climbing ability and allows the rider to maintain an efficient cadence even on the longest accent.
Finished off with 28c wide tyres, these add to the comfort for the rider offering more cushioning than the standard 23c or 25c width tyre that come standard on many bikes.
The Apollo Ultra 10 is a great value performance road bike, designed as a comfortable and efficient option for the social rider or long distance commuter.
